Wilding Cider Reasons To Be Cheerful is a rich, complex, rural method cider with a gentle sparkle. Cider to make you happy, it is made from good quality, late-harvested fruit from Ditcheat Hill, Hanham Court, and Wilding Orchard.

A blend of Ashton Brown Jersey, Dabinett, Vilberie and several rich dessert varieties, it was co-fermented in stainless steel and racked in the winter to retain residual sugar. Nothing added, wild yeast fermentation and with no filtration or pasteurisation. There is very light carbonation from the residual fermentation after bottling. There is a lot of tropical fruit aroma, with robust tannins and the sweetness kept in check by fresh acid. Extremely drinkable with lots of foods and in lots of settings - whenever you need a reason to be cheerful!

Wilding Cider is a small yet acclaimed maker based in Chew Magna, set up in 2018 by Beccy and Sam Leach after some years of hobby cidermaking. They cultivate and harvest traditional cider varieties from their own natural orchard, along with other unsprayed orchards they look after. They avoid additives and preservatives, preferring to harness wild yeasts and natural techniques, and allow their creations oodles of time to mature before releasing them.
